Tall, skinny kid that could handle the ball, shoot the 3 and put you on a poster, yeah, that was Anthony Barbee, or as most in our town call him, Lil Barbee. The young man with the same last name as the street he grew up on, was and still is a legend in the town of Ripley, TN. Anthony Barbee was a great person with a big heart and everyone that knew him can vouch for that. Lil Barbee was always positive and upbeat and would often times have some encouraging words. His legacy in Ripley as well as Nashville, Memphis and other surrounding areas of the state of TN, will live forever. We lost a legend this week and now my whole hood is hurting. The community has come together this week to show just how much he will be missed. Remember, the REAL ones never die! BIGG Talks Sports and Entertainment would like to send our deepest condolences to his family, friends, and everyone that has been grieving. He is in a much better place than we are and we will forever have special memories of “Mr. Rice Park” aka Bunkin Beezy aka Lil Barbee #1.
